KBL’s solution for the 4,000 MW UMPP


Kirloskar Brothers (KBL) has installed the world’s largest water pumping system for Tata Power’s Mundra ultra modern power plant (UMPP). A mammoth 10.5 million litres of water is circulated with the help of its 10 sets of concrete volute pumps every minute. The Coastal Gujarat Power, Tata Power’s subsidiary, which implemented the 4,000 MW UMPP requires an enormous amount of water to condense heat generated in power production. The company created a circulating water system wherein sea water from the Arabian Sea is used as a heat sink to condense steam in the condenser. Cold water from the sea is pumped through the condenser going back to sea through an outfall structure.
All of 10.5 million litres in 60 seconds!
